. this is an amendment about energy, and as we all know, energy is a strategic resource for us. every member of our armed forces understands this and they understand it well. energy is essential to our national security mission. everybody knows you don't go out there and move in an aggressive way without good, solid energy supplies behind you. and having access to reliable energy supplies to protect our men and women in uniform is just absolutely essential, no matter where they may be in the world. it is critical to our nation that we have these good energy supplies. and each branch of the armed forces recognizes the importance of biofuels as a critical part of our energy needs. our military faces numerous logistical challenges with its dependence on fossil fuels. increasing diversification through investment and alternative fuels will help the military carry out its mission safely. and without the need to rely exclusively on foreign sources of you'll from countries who do not share our interests overseas. the amendment offered by senator toomey, the gentleman from pennsylvania, trades some short-term be

to the president if you want to start today and creating jobs, energy is a really good place to start. pen the stroke of the president could create 25,000 jobs. and look at the outer continental shelf, there are a lot of opportunities to create tens of thousands of good, high- paying jobs in the energy industry were not only do you , but youally good jobs also bring in treasury revenue that will reduce the deficit. you allow the country to become energy independent so we do not have to buy so many -- so much oil from the eastern countries that do not like us. we will see in the next few weeks if the president is serious about working with us. >> where did the president say i agree with you, let's do that? >> i specifically mentioned to the president on spending. he came as we said he will close the white house to tours. i said instead of these kinds of things of closing of the white house and threatening to lay off food inspectors, how about working with us on real specific ways that his own agency has identified as real waste in government? instead of laying off food inspectors, work with
with a renewable energy lab and illinois. what is a renewable energy lap? pushing for more spending. china is pushing to invest $50 million on natural-gas. could be starting. we have massive amounts of natural gas, as you know, but the white house is kind of fickle on fracking all of that. in fact, some are saying even a fraction of that. this china think to my you in ambassador john bolton. good to have you back. what do you make of this? obviously china wants in. they are not dump. what do you think they're looking at? >> chinese energy policy is sort of mitt romney's energy policy. all of the above. they had a huge demand for energy. in energy poor country. oil, natural gas, nuclear, you name it and thereaftert. the fact that they're looking at liquefied natural gas for propulsion of vehicles and doing it in this country, it reflects the they're doing it there as well. what are we doing? we have a president hitting stars can be run without gene windmills'. i think the chinese are taking a very practical approach. more practical than our administration, and it worries me. neil: you know
, president obama talked about a new energy trust. more spending for things like solyndra. okay, that was one thing, that was their message point today. it was very strange. >> that's kind of dilutional, right. >> and think about the keystone pipeline as a gift. basically now everybody has blessed it except for president obama. we're waiting on his decision which he says to the house republicans will come this week, but i think it's a very interesting point about erskine bowles and other democrats behind the scenes, president obama's problem isn't necessarily the republicans. he's got a huge problem with the senate democrats. he can't bring them along on something that the government should be doing anyway, which is the changed cpi, which is really like a technical fix and inflation goes up and down and spending, it's not reform, it's something that the government should be doing anyway, and he this week, a wall street journal headline, president obama tries to woo democrats over to his side. so his problem is not with the republicans, he would probably be able to triangulate with them. the p
are going to choose an energy future that doesn't just look at the energy source of the past but also looks at the energy sources of tomorrow. and addresses climate change in a serious way. and, you know, some people remarked that, you know, i looked -- had a little more pep in my step in the inauguration and the state of the union, and i have to tell you, it wasn't because i was off the campaign trail because nothing energizes me interacting with the american people day in and day out. the reason is i felt like this was a vision, if we can get it implemented, really would allow america to take off. our economy is recovering. it is resilient. but it not yet where it need to be. we've got millions of people who are still out of work or underemployed. we've still got businesses that could be thriving if we're able to make sure washington doesn't engage in self-induced crises. we'll have a lot of work to do. let's face it, there's still a lot of divisions and arguments here in washington. doing our h we are very west to reach out to the other side, and i think there's a genuine desire on the p
possible so far is encouraging the development of other forms of energy and other types of energy usage that could compete with traditional fossil fuels. in the presidential election became part of the stump speech, that there have been loans for the electric car company, tesla. mr. romney said that was investing in losers. now, they have released their annual report saying they will start early repam on its government backed loans. it is moving ahead of schedule to repay the investment, an investment that was made to try to goose the american development of cars that run on electricity instead of gas. here's the thing. that loan to tesla that republicans made such fun of, that loan that turned out great in the end. that was made through a loan program created in 2007. signed into law by a previous president named george w. bush and even when it is working, it is a laugh line to them. mitt romney was good on the climate issue until he wants to run for higher office. republicans were all for invest ting in electric car until they decided to call it a joke. what are our chances of moving
really brought energy to cpac. i think that, you know, yesterday had a lot of energy when rand paul was here. he really got people on their feet. today his has been more sedate, even though it's more people that are supposedly running for president in 2016. actually i just want to point out, behind me, it was really, really empty about 15 minutes ago because the panel was about outreach to minority and women. that to me sums up cpac in one particular image. >> yes, that's true. anna marie, we'll pause for a moment. the scintillating speaker, eric cantor, is at the podium. let's listen to him for two seconds. >> too bright, that she needed more opportunity than that school could give her. the teacher told essence to apply for the louisiana scholarship program. a program which would ensure that -- >> okay. i think we've had enough of that. professor dyson, it's been tough to keep up with the goings on at cpac. we've had senator kelly ayotte asking why aren't we intervening in see so seyria and iran? we've had wayne lapierre. we had mitt romney politely -- cpac for failing to invite th
tap of our own energy resources here, but the boom from fracking makes this much very clear. it is ad goo day when it's the cartels whining about what we're doing and this time how it's costing them. anyway, just how big a deal is this more than a little pinch for opec? let's ask sandra smith and phil flynn. what do you think? >> they'll feel the pinch. this is going to be costly for them to the tune of citigroup has a drastic note in the month of february saying opec finds is challenging to last another 60 years. they are saying we have the ability to be energy independent in the next 20 years. they've even on some of the analysts say in the next five to ten years based on the shale boom here in the united states. we have the ability, according to the intergnarl energy agency, to overtake saudi arabia, the kingpin of oil production for opec in the next five to ten years. neil: that is assuming we keep going with fracking. >> that is assuming the environmentalists don't get in the way or private business still has enough incentive to do this, and that the government doesn't get in the
the budget and energy policy or even how we grow the economy it starts by having a conversation. so i thought it was a good sign that he came and he met with us. we'll see what follows. >> shannon: i understand there was discussion of the keystone pipeline and whether or not that will be approved by the administration. the white house says it is up to the state department. even from the white house there has to be influence or input from there. the president gave a speech in chicago this week on energy issues. where do you think he is on that? yes. >> didn't hint either way. he basically said that he was going be making a decision shortly. and he just went through the different considerations but we need this pipeline. we need to say yes to american energy, north american energy. it is one of the best ways to get our economy growing and get people back to work is by actually committing to a national energy policy that would make us energy independent. so i'm hopeful that he will say, yes. boy, across-the-board people have been making the case to him. they changed the route. they have done eve

[ applause ] if mrs. thatcher were with us here today, she would remind us, there is it a difference between being pro business and pro free market. there is no mistaking where conservatives stand. it is time for we the people to break up cronyism and put a stake in the heart too big to fail once and for all.

thing we can do is to make sure we control our own energy. so here's what i have done since i have been president, we have increased oil production to the highest levels in 16 years. natural gas production is the highest it's been in decades. stuart: that was the presidential debates. the president taking credit for america's energy boon. in fact, he has stood in the way of that boom, and it's not me that's saying this. it is the congressional research office. their latest report says, quote, direct quote, all the increase in oil and natural gas production from 2007 to 2012 took place on non-federal land. we do indeed have an energy boom, but it is not the result of the administration's policy on the federal land they control. it is the result of private enterprise, getting the oil and gas out of private property. the president slowed down the permitting process on federal land. he restricted offshore drilling. he got in the way of the energy boom. yet in the debate he took the credit. it was clearly good politics. he won the election, but it's lousy policy. if he would just get out of
. the president doesn't. we want to unlock our energy resources to put more americans back to work. the president doesn't. but having said that, today was a good start. >> again, if the president wants to let our unwillingness to raise taxes get in the way, then we're not going to be able to set differences aside. >> so they are trying to act inflexible and it seems that the president has held on to his guns. >> right, and two of those statements, the two statements john boehner made, aren't exactly true, to be very xartable about it. the president does care about fiscal balance. he's put a deal on the table. he just doesn't think we need to get there as quickly as the republicans claim we get there. and in terms of unlocking our energy, we are closer to energy independence than we've ever been. they may want to drill in places the president doesn't. but we're making a lot of progress on energy. i think eric cantor's statement put his finger on it. the republicans in the house in particular, and we're going to see how republicans in the senate do, that the republicans in the house are simply not
, dandy idea, mr. president. should have started with yours. >>> the president's pressing the new energy strategy in his weekly address. >> free our families and our business from painful spikes in gas prices once and for all. >> we will ask a former energy secretary if it will work. first though, our political headlines. >>> wisconsin republican governor scott walker tells politico he is open to a presidential bid and will not pledge to serve a full four-year term as governor if he is re-elected next year. he told politico his focus is on substance, not longevity. walker is in maryland today also speaking at cpac. >>> former new york congressman anthony weiner may be planning a political come back. the new york democrat recently spent more than $100,000 on polls and consultants. weiner, of course, resigned in 2011 when a suggestive photo that he tweeted became public. which public office he might be considering that is later in the program today. >>> and secretary of defense chuck hagel said the united states will deploy a $1 billion anti-missile defense system along the pacific coast t
the importance of growth. i just came from a hearing in the energy subcommittee of energy and commerce. we were fortunate enough to hear from the -- one of the members of the railroad commission in texas. the railroad commission doesn't have anything to do with trains any more, it has to do with energy. the commissioner from texas was at the committee hearing and i asked him a question, i said in the ryan budget that we will hear about tomorrow, there is an estimate of $11 billion over the next 10 years that will be paid to the federal government because of development of oil and natural gas on federal land. i said i'm from texas. that number seems a little bit light to me. i would expect the amount of revenue produced on federal lands from oil and gas production, assuming we don't legislate it out of existence through the environmental protection agency, he said in texas the two-year budget figure for oil and goes coverage taxes is $7 billion. well, that would be a significantly greater amount than the $11 billion estimated in the ryan budget. i asked mr. ryan about this last night at the rule

infrastructure. water, environment, transportation, public facilities and energy. this year's report card has some good news and bad news. the rate improved slightly from the last report card in 2009. that only brought us up to a d plus. to bring our infrastructure up to par, we would need to invest $3.6 trillion by 2020. that would create jobs, boost productivity, repair bridges, roads and water mains and stimulate the economy, but it won't happen unless republicans like michele bachmann get behind president obama's push for infrastructure spending and not just when it makes for a good photo op. >> the republicans are just totally bamboozled and entirely lacking in confidence. >> the national review joins rush limbaugh's attack. tea partiers attack paul ryan for being too liberal. the big panel weighs in on the right wing chaos, next. and a methodist pastor is taking a stand for marriage equality. >> one of our phrases we like to use is all means all. >> the man of god refusing to perform opposite sex marriages until same-sex marriages are legalized. so if you have a flat tire, dead battery,

congress to pay for research and clean energy and a new effort to wean cars off of oil, and this news comes as the president prepares to speak at argan laboratory outside of chicago, and one of the energy research leaders. kristen welker is with us live at the white house, a nd we understand that the president has a plan to pay for the research? >> he does, richard. good morning to you. and the plan is to take revenue from oil and gas leases from offshore drilling saying that it will not add to deficit and it won't require drilling on new lands, but of course, the challenge here is to get this through both chambers of congress, and some law mamakers expressing concern that it will add to the deficit, but we should say that there are some who are saying that they are willing to learn more about the are president's proposal and among those republican senator lisa murkowski, and it is to increase research on biofuels and batteries for electric cars and things that will ultimately make the united states energy independent. we will say that the president will be greeted by protesters and those w

as a country must tackle. first, energy. ryan's plan paves a path for affordable and american produced energy, most notably, the plan green lights the keystone pipeline to generate almost 140,000 jobs. second, health care, first and foremost the budget repeals obamacare and strengthsens the medicare system for future generations. third, welfare reform, changes made in 1996 by extended reforms to other programs. gives states flexibility so they can tailor programs like medicaid and food stamps. and lastly addresses tax reform calling for congress to simplify the code, closing loopholes and consolidating tax rates. ryan's goal is to have just two tax brackets. 10% and 25%. so the question now is, well, will democrats see this as congressman ryan and again, just throwing granny over the cliff. are they going to demagogue it it? don't laugh, a sequel to the ad is already out and we're going to play for you in just a few minutes or will senate democrats who haven't passed a budget in more than 1400 days, will they seize this opportunity to get the country on a fiscally sound path like paul ryan is
